Quotation of the day on why conservatives are so happy and leftists are so miserable …..

….. is from a Facebook post by Evan Sayet, political commentator, comedian, and author of “KinderGarden of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks” and “Apocali Now!”:

One reason conservatives are so happy and Leftists are so miserable is that capitalists need friends. They need business partners and investors, trading partners and customers so satisfied they come back again and again. The socialist needs enemies. There must be people who hate him and oppress him. If he’s not hated and oppressed then socialism doesn’t exist.

If he can’t find any such hatred, he’s forced to make it up. “Dog whistles” – he knows what you’re REALLY saying — and “micro-aggressions” are all invented nonsense because this “oppression” simply MUST be true or else there’s no socialist movement (and no free things.)

The socialist doesn’t need to work well with others because he doesn’t work. What he needs is an excuse to justify his theft.

HT: Glenn Reynolds, who comments “This seems about right.”
